So I've decided to move forward with a plan to make life more organized and therefore make myself happier. Organization is so important to me and I'm super stressed that without it when I go back to work things will just be a wreck....so here's the plan -
1. Chore List - for ALL four of us. The boys are going to get an allowance for a set amount of things that must be accomplished. And Mike and I will each have our individual responsibilities.
2. Errand Assignments - Mike will handle Sam's and the bank. I handle groceries, clothes and gifts.
3. Meal Planning - two weeks at a time. each boy will pick a dinner of their choice during the two weeks and they will help make it as well.
4. Better Weekday Schedule - ie. Home, Snack, Chores, Play, Dinner, Homework, Play/Dessert, Bed - this way everyone knows the plan and everything gets done.
So I'm excited. Mike's on board. We are on our way to happy people.
